Chances are you want this leaf but need some guide, because there’s a lot of leaves.
First, the important stuff:
You can buy kratom online, or plant a tree yourself, and choose between four different strains:
Kratom has different alkaloid concentration, depending on where it’s harvested.
Maeng da is harvested from Thailand.Malay from Malaysia. Maeng da is known for stimulation and focus. Malay is more relaxing.
Hard to pinpoint the perfect dose since there’s no official kratom dosage.
If you’re a beginner you should start with a low, but effective dose.
The effects depends heavily on body mass and tolerance.
Many experienced kratom users recommend you increase or decrease by 0.5 gram until you find your ”perfect dose”.
Taking kratom with orange juice activates the alkaloids for stronger effects.
Also, Kratom extract is stronger than standard.
If you place crushed kratom leaf or powder into alcohol and let it soak for days, you get kratom tincture.
All depends on how you decide to take it. Powder, tea, capsule, or other formulas are available.
Most people like powder form, it’s more fun to be in control of your own dose.
Here are some tested and safe kratom doses (powder form):
Avoid high doses regularly. This will make sure you have the best kratom experience. And to keep the medical benefits.
Less is more translates to less tolerance and enhanced medical value.
If you decide to take plain leaf you should do so on an empty stomach because the effects arrive quicker.
Low, moderate doses are stimulating and euphoric. Higher doses produce sedating effects.
How kratom operates exactly is unknown. But research has discovered the alokids works on the brain in different ways.
Kratom act mainly as an opioid receptor agonist similar to morphine. The effects work very similar to opium and that’s why it’s a substitute for the drug.
How it feels also depends heavily on the source and the different extracts, also known as:
Tincture varies in a method of extraction and potency. If you like this route make sure to get it from a reputable source.
Many people use an enhacned leaf to satisfy their extract needs because of high potency and lack of side effects.
Ultra Enhanced Indo is the most popular choice.
Reisin extract has more well-rounded spectrum of effects compared to water-based extraction.
The most common form of kratom. When you shop around, you might see 5x or 10x, this means how much leaf material was used. Important to buy kratom online from a reputable supplier because some might not be 100% honest.
When you start your kratom journey, have a nice one, you might encounter the term ”wobbles”
Woobles describe the most eminent side effect of kratom.
If this occurs, you might have found it difficult to focus your eyes at one specific point without getting annoyed. Wobbles can also cause nausea and headaches.
I recommend you buy magnesium threonate if you’re prone to headaches. This form can deliver magnesium to the brain and also enhance your cognitive performance.
A dose under 5grams won’t produce the wobble effect.
Kratom is a nice leaf that can replace many medications.
